Java Development Kit (JDK)
The Java Development Kit is a software development environment used to create Java applications. The JDK includes JRE (Java Runtime Environment), an interpreter (java), a compiler (javac), an archiver, a documentation generator, and other tools needed for java application development.
Oracle Corporation is releasing the platform in the form of a binary product aimed at Java developers on Solaris, Linux, Windows or macOS.
JDK is the implementation of any one of the following Java Platforms, released by Oracle corporation:
- Standard Edition Java Platform
- Enterprise Edition Java Platform
- Micro Edition Java Platform
Components integrated with JDK are:
|The tool can be used to execute and debug Java applets without a web browser.
|It is a component that detects JAR file conflicts.
|It is the loader for Java applications.This tool is an interpreter and can translate the class files generated by the javac compiler. After the introduction of this utility, a single launcher is used for both development and deployment.
|It is the Java compiler, which converts source code into Java bytecode.
|It is a documentation generator, which automatically generates documentation from source code comments.
|It is the archiver, which packages related class libraries into a single JAR file.
|It is an annotation –processing tool.
|It is the acronym for the IDL-to-Java compiler. This utility of JDK generates Java bindings from a given Java IDL file.
|It is the Java Access bridge. It opened assistive technologies on Microsoft Windows systems.
|A tool to package and sign JavaFX application
|A jar signing and verification tool.
|It is a C header and stub generator which is used to write native methods.
|A class file disassembler.
|It is a Java Web Start launcher that can be used by the JNLP application.
|Java Monitoring and Management Console
|It is a debugger that is used to test and debug the programs.
|Acronym for Java Heap Analysis Tool, it is an experimental utility not yet published publicly.
|The utility gets configuration information from a running Java process or crashed dump but it is an experimental component of JDK.
|jmap Oracle-jmap MemoryMap
|The components return the memory map and can print the shared object memory map or heap memory detail of a given process/core dump. (experimental)
|Java Mission Control, allows Java administrators and developers to gather detailed low level information about how the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Java application are behaving.
|Java Virtual Machine Process Status Tool which lists the instrumented HotSpot Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) on the target system. (experimental)
|Java command-line script shell. That enables the programmer to access the operating system’s services.
|The new jshell introduced in java 9.
|The component that prints Java Stack traces (a report of the active stack frames at a certain point of time when the program being executed) of Java threads (experimental)
|Java Virtual Machine statistics monitoring tool (experimental)
|jstat daemon (experimental)
|A tool for manipulating the keystore (a repository of security certificates- either authorization certificates or public key certificates).
|JAR compression tool which can be used to reduce the size of the jar file.
|It is the policy creation and management tool, which determines the policy for a Java runtime and specify that which permissions are available for code from various sources.
|It is a visual tool that integrates several Command-Line JDK tools, lightweight performance and memory profiling capabilities.
|It generates portable JAX-WS (Java API for XML Web services) artifacts for invoking a web service.
|The component is part of the Java API for XML Binding (JAXB) API which accepts an XML schema and generates Java classes.
